Situated on the rolling hills of the smallest appellation in Bordeaux, the Cote de Franc is quietly producing some of the finest Bordeaux varietals. Sharing the same terroir as the renowned districts of Pauillac, Pomeral and Margaux – Chateau Franc-Cardinal’s vineyards are just a stone’s throw away. The high altitude, and cooler temperatures are advantageous, in particular for Merlot and Cabernet Franc; two of the Chateau’s specialties. The wines of Bordeaux are in great demand, commanding record-breaking prices, and a find such as Chateau Franc-Cardinal is like striking gold.
